Well, I'll be trying a new role with Team in Training with the spring team: mentor captain.
Now in case you think I will be commanding a ship or something like that, nothing of the kind. I'll be working with the mentors for the team and trying to help them help their mentorees in a very tough fund raising economy. It will be an interesting experience, and I hope that I can be useful in that role. In every other TNT event I have done, I only was involved with the marathon teams. In the capacity of mentor captain, I will work with mentors for the marathon, triathlon, and century cycle teams. I'll look forward to working with this fine group of volunteers, several of whom are prior teammates.
Tomorrow is the Light the Night walk. I am really looking forward to it.
Here is a photo my friend Kristi took of me after Saturday's information meeting. I like the fall colors in it, and of course, I am dressed in blue - suitable for a captain, wouldn't you say?
